Excerpt: Ive had my SPRINT Sanyo Zio for a few months now and i'm happy with it. i'm not sure why people have negative reviews about this phone. . its flaws arnt at the level that some people make them out to be. maybe they are just using the CRICKET Sanyo Zio.
Excerpt: Pretty bulky to me... I haven't had the phone, but for a week. I am working on finding out all that this thing has to offer. So, far there are a few advantages and disadvantages. Totally hooked on apps. and I am on the search for more. The instructions that were provided aren't all that helpful.
Pros: Apps. are killer., It's a phone.
Cons: Battery life sucks., Phone malfunctioned and went blank white screen and froze with a loud weird sound that followed.
Excerpt: This is a nice phone for what its worth but since sprint has a sizeable line-up, any one can do better. The phone is very light and with a 3.5 inch wvga resoulution screen, the phone can more than surface, however the color reproduction is a litttle off.
Pros: Light, nice screen, decent but not particularly good photos, track ball, intuitive sprint ID interface
Cons: color reproduction not the best, 600mhz proccseser, screen not all that responsive
Excerpt: My wife and I each got a zio about a month ago and we love them. Cricket catches a lot of heat on the interwebs but I've been very pleased with the 55$ unlimited plan. The phone runs great but as with everything it does have a few drawbacks.
Pros: Lightweight, good size and shape. Decent camera. Economical.
Cons: Video isn't very good, occasionally locks up, limited screen space when virtual keyboard is active.
Excerpt: It has been almost one week since I got this phone. For the most part I love it but there are some drawbacks. The android technology is truly impressive even though it is a Cricket. Sometimes the phone moves a little slow but it isn’t that noticeable.
Pros: Downloading apps, Cricket price, Screen resolution, Lightweight and attractive, It does what most smart phones can do
Cons: Camera, Battery life, Screen goes off fast (even when settings are changed), Text messages only appear in status bar, The buttons are small
Excerpt: I havent had an android smartphone before the zio so i dont know if i am quailified enough really to be giving a review here but i'll still write my opinion here having had this phone for a few weeks now and starting to get comfortable with android os and you can take it or leave it.
Pros: - beautiful resolution on screen, - responsive touch screen controls, - decent operation speed, - good starter phone for android noobs., - android os =)
Cons: - having no physical keyboard the portrait view on screen keyboard is a little hard to use although landscape keyboard works very well., - camera side button is a little awkward to use., - could use a little bit more internal memory.
